Is qbank from Schweser essential for L1? Did anyone pass without schweser Qbank?
The CFA pgm has online practice tests, would that and mock exams not be sufficient to passing? Do we have to get the qbank? the qbank itself works out about 1/3 of what I paid for the cfa programme in total ( After conversion rates)
This was my score matrix (I passed):
50 or Under:
Alt invest, F.I., Derivatives
51 to 70
CF, FRA, PM, Quant, Econ
71 to 100
I believe my Min, Max and 40/60/80 was: min: 45.8%, 40/60/80: 61%, max: 73.5%
